"All people possess gifts. It's my job to help students bridge the gap between what they know and don't know about their gifts. It's my hope that all students who work with me will walk away with a clearer idea of who they are as musicians, what they still need to figure out about themselves, and where to go next."
"I've been wonderfully fortunate in my professional career and have been able to achieve a great deal of the goals to which my students aspire. As a result, if a student is singing with technique that would be unsustainable across a lengthy tour, I can speak with some authority on that because I've lived it myself. If a song has shortcomings, I can share the tools I use with them because I'm actively using them myself, and I've learned them from some of the best."
